Mixing Concepts and Applications for Writers

Course Number

The course focuses on mixing techniques through the use of sound processing as it pertains to the writer who engineers and produces his or her own pieces. Through the use of plug-ins, the understanding and artistic application of ambient effects (e.g. reverbs, delays, flangers, harmonizers, and choruses) and dynamic processing units (e.g. compressors, noise gates, equalizers, and limiters) the course explores how writing can be enhanced at the recording and mixing stage through the effective use of sound processing equipment. The student will have the opportunity to understand how to enhance their recordings with these effects through in-class demonstration, listening analysis, and assigned projects using specified equipment.
